This week at the University of Liverpool with special live band Stiff Little Fingers.
It wasn't long ago that this Belfast band were sticking together the picture bags for their own records, and before that had trouble finding a venue to perform. So they hired a hotel function room on the pretext of a 21st birthday party, persuading patrons in the car park to 'contribute' to the invitation cards The same enterprise prompted them to form their own label to release 'Suspect Device', a debut single showing their capability of producing an explosive sound.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
